The short game is key to low scores. If you're able to get your wedges really dialed in, the whole game is easier. At Austad's, our Master Club Fitters go through extensive training so that they can help you identify wedges with the right gapping, bounce, grip and more. Our goal with any wedge fitting is that you will hit the course with more confidence in your short game and ultimately have a whole lot more fun playing golf.

At our Custom Wedge Fitting Session, you'll have the ability to test out wedges from all of the top brands in golf, including Cleveland, Titleist, Callaway, Ping and more. Our Master Club Fitters will work with you to analyze the data from your shots so that you can hone in on the wedges that will put you in scoring position more often. Once you go through our Professional Wedge Fitting Process, you'll never just grab a wedge off the rack again - we guarantee it.
Our Professional Wedge Fitting Session includes:
Model Selection – You and your Custom Fitting Pro will test and compare multiple wedges from multiple brands to help you find the perfect wedge for your swing. Your Master Club Fitter may make recommendations for you to try some specific wedges, but what you hit is always up to you. If there is a wedge you really want to try - let your fitter know! He or she will make sure we get it in your hands.
Loft(s) – The right loft on your wedges can really impact your entire game. We'll work with you to determine which lofts and what gapping between clubs is right for you. By analyzing your ball flight, spin rate and current iron set, you'll be able to quickly identify how much loft you need for each wedge.
Bounce – Golfers generally know that the loft of a club helps get the ball in the air. But bounce, which is the angle of the sole against the ground at address, is just as important to a good golf shot. Your Master Club Fitter will help you determine the right degree of bounce you need for each wedge as you go through our fitting process.
Lie Angle – Your golf swing is completely unique to you and our fitting pros will be able to tell if you need wedges that are upright or flat and how much after analyzing your swing and ball flight pattern.
Shaft Length - Wedges that are too short or too long can have a serious impact on your ability to stick the pin. We'll help you find the right shaft length for the wedges you choose so that they become a true extension of your irons and not just something you thrown in your bag for short shots.
Shaft Flex - Shaft flex matters for all your golf clubs, including your wedges. By analyzing your swing speed and other details of your game, our Certified Master Fitters will help you find the right flex shaft for your wedges.
Grip Size – The right grip size is often overlooked as a key part of the custom fitting process. After taking your static measurements, your fitter will provide a recommendation for your grip size.
Grip Type – There are hundreds of different types of grips on the market, each with a slightly different feel and each with pros and cons. At a Wedge Fitting Session, you'll be able to evaluate the various types of grips to determine which one is right for you.
Ball Suggestion – The right golf ball can mean the difference between a 10 foot birdie putt and chipping from the sand trap. After analyzing your ball flight, your fitting pro will provide you with a recommendation for several golf balls that would be a good fit for your game.
